How to Use the Colour of Sophistication - Grey to its Best

Fads fade and classics stay; and grey paint colours are classics that won’t go out of trend anytime soon. But not everybody’s comfortable with opting for a grey house painting colour, especially the dark shades, in their home interiors or even on the exterior. If you, too, tend to shy away from choosing this house painting colour because you’re not sure how to use it right, we have a few grey paint colour tips for you.

Tinges (not shades) of Grey

How to Use the Colour of Sophistication - Grey to its Best Yes, there are numerous shades of grey. But there also exists something known as tinges of grey. These are nothing but bluish grey, greenish grey, yellowish grey, brownish grey, and pinkish grey. You can experiment with slightly different tinges of grey with undertones of different colours in them. Pick dark paint colours like Amazon (2972), Savannah Green (4571), or Plum Pie (2321) for your bedrooms and other interiors of your house. To make your home appear spacious and neat, lighter house painting colours like Balance (4554), Chameleon (2599), and Amherst Fog (2319) are perfect fits. Choose these for your living rooms, bedrooms, kitchen, or even home exteriors; get as creative as you can!

Sophisticated Home Exteriors

How to Use the Colour of Sophistication - Grey to its Best Beige and off-white house painting colours for exteriors are too common. Add a dash of sophistication to your home exteriors. Choose from endless house painting ideas that you can play around with using different shades and tinges of grey. You only have a few hundred grey options! Depending on which tinge and shade of grey you choose for your home’s exterior, other elements can be painted in complementing colours from our colour palette. Let’s say you choose a rich charcoal grey paint colour like Inner Depth (2966), the window and door frames, balconies, and siding can be painted in white or off-white. And why just whites, you can also pick other vibrant colours like yellows, greens, blues, and pinks, that go well with grey house painting. These colours also create an amazing contrast with lighter tones of grey.

Unusual Combinations with Grey

The easiest way to do this is to make your favourite pick from our colour palette, and paint an accent wall in your living room or bedroom with it.

Stylish Grey Patterns

Unable to get shades of grey in Impressions 24 carat. When I contacted the shopkeeper he asked me to take an ASIAN PAINT shade card and to select the shade that I wish to buy. He would then provide the same shade in NEROLAC and he refused to provide a NEROLAC shade card which I found absurd.. Being a loyal customer of NEROLAC paints thought of addressing my concern to you.
